Pancake Day

One super delicious British holiday that of course we never forget!  Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday was created to feast up on pantry luxuries such as butter and sugar before the six weeks that lay ahead for lent.

Pancake Day was one of our favorite holidays as kids, pancakes for dinner..yum yum!  Our mum would stand at the stove for hours flipping pancakes, gradually building a huge stack keeping warm in the oven, preparing a feast ready for a king.  Her classic recipe below and Sarah’s pics from today.  Enjoy!
